Detectives Sloan and Crosby find themselves assigned two rather puzzling cases. First, there’s the young woman’s body which has been discovered in the River Alm. And then there’s the mysterious break-in at the Berebury Nursing Home. To be precise, it’s Josephine Short’s room at the nursing home that’s been entered, although nothing seems to be missing. What could the intruder have been after? It becomes apparent to Sloan and Crosby that the two cases are connected—but who can the killer be?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Ric Jerrom keeps the story on pace with its diverse characters, giving Sloan and Crosby the greatest distinction. Crosby is hilarious, though not always by intention, and Sloane is a perfect counterpoint. Several subplots add interest to the story. A great slice of contemporary village life.”


  • “The investigatory process seems realistic, and the characters are well developed. A solid British procedural.”


  • “The latest in Aird’s long string of slyly humorous mysteries featuring Sloan and Crosby is a classic English police procedural sure to delight her many fans.”

    " Sloan, Crosby and Leeyes are old friends, and it was lovely to meet them again after a break in the publishing schedule. 3 stars because I figured several things out early on. But it was still good fun. "
